For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
Someone challenged me the other day and said that I could not prove that Jesus left Judaism. I offer this verse as proof to the contrary.
The Bible says Christ did not enter into those holy places made by men, but into heaven itself. The passage goes on to tell us that all those man made structures were to prefigure that which is real in heaven. They were not real in and of themselves – ever.
But we are not in heaven, someone will argue. That is true. Today we have a new place to worship in; a place not constructed by the hands of man but built by Christ Himself. He promised He would build His church. That’s not a building of wood or stone. His building is made up of men and women who:
- have professed faith in Christ
- been baptized by immersion as a sign of their faith and
- committed themselves together in union for His cause
That’s a Baptist Church!
Hebrews 9:24 We Worship Today in a Baptist Church
